What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Cavities, one of the most common dental problems, develop when bacteria attack your dental enamel. In the past, dental cavities were treated with an amalgam material, which is a mixture of different metals, such as mercury or silver. Now we know that amalgam fillings do not adhere very well to the teeth and the mercury may be hazardous to your overall health. At Maison BE in New York, NY, our dentists use tooth-colored fillings made from a composite resin to fill and protect cavities. We can also take out old metal fillings and apply composite resin fillings for a more reliable and natural-looking treatment for cavities. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Ellen Katz or Dr. Bridget Glazarov today.
What to Expect with Tooth-Colored Fillings
Receiving a filling at Maison BE is usually a quick procedure. The area surrounding the cavity will be numbed with a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. After you are prepared, the decayed enamel can be cleared away with a dental drill that your dentist will select based on the location of the cavity and the amount of decay. After the enamel is removed and the area is disinfected, the cavity will be replaced with the composite resin and set with a special light. Your dentist will then polish the filling material so it matches your natural teeth. You should be able to resume your normal day once your treatment is complete, but you may have sensitivity to hot and cold beverages for a few days. You may use over-the-counter pain medication to address discomfort, but you should not experience any major problems.

The cleanliness of the office and the professionalism of the dental team made me feel very comfortable at my appointment and well taken care of. Thank you very much to Dr. Katz and her wonderful team.
Dr. Katz is amazing!!!! No one likes to go to the dentist and now I love it. She is friendly, gentle, sympathetic, and does excellent dentistry. I have sent my coworkers and they are just as happy.
Dr. Katz is a well-educated and experienced dentist with an excellent bedside manner and a very gentle touch. Highly recommend!
Seeing Dr. Katz and her caring staff makes going to the dentist almost palatable 🤪. Dr. Katz is kind, compassionate, and a very good dentist. She’s not going for the money grab and is conservative in her treatment. Would highly recommend this practice.
I had Invisalign done by Dr. Katz and the results are next to magnificent! In 6 months' time, I have absolutely straight teeth and a smile I am proud of! I couldn’t have done it without the amazing dedication of Dr. Katz!
